JA Solar to Supply 96 MW of Modules to China Power Investment for Projects in
China's Qinghai Province
SHANGHAI, China, Sept. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JA Solar Holdings Co.,
Ltd. (Nasdaq:JASO) ("JA Solar" or the "Company"), one of the world's largest
manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today announced that
it will supply 96 MW of solar modules to CPI Huanghe Hydropower Development
Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Power Investment Corporation
("CPI"), for use on two solar projects in China's Qinghai Province. Delivery
of the modules has already commenced and will be completed later this month.
The two projects are located in Gonghe County in Qinghai's Hainan Autonomous
Prefecture, and have a capacity of 320 MW and 200 MW, respectively. The 320 MW
project is a hybrid hydro-solar power station that will work in conjunction
with the existing Longyangxia Hydro Power Station to increase and smooth
energy generation. Upon completion, the hybrid hydro-solar power station will
become the largest of its kind in the world.
The extreme temperatures in the region mean it is among the world's most
challenging environments for solar installations. The projects are expected to
commence commercial operations by October this year.
"These projects are the latest product of our successful partnership with CPI
and a big win for JA Solar as we look to take advantage of increased
installation activity in China," said Mr. Baofang Jin, executive chairman and
CEO of JA Solar. "Due to the harsh environment, quality was a key criterion
for the projects, and the fact that JA Solar was selected from a wide pool of
potential suppliers demonstrates the superior reliability and durability of
our modules. We expect the quality of our modules to continue to be a
significant advantage as we look to expand our footprint across key markets."
